Editor's Overview

After four decades of excellence, the BMW 3 Series remains the prototypical premium sports sedan, small, engaging and luxurious. Now available in a wide variety of flavors, including the legendary high-performance M3 hot rod as well as a plug-in hybrid, the 2017 BMW 3 Series retains that enviable appeal now cemented with aspirational buyers, but the competition continues to increase.

Structure > Frame And Members Sep 8, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 8, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V653000
Summary:
BMW North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2016 BMW M2 Coupe vehicles, 2015-2017 M3 Sedan vehicles and 2015-2016 M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible vehicles. During servicing of the rear differential for a prior service action, the rear sub-frame bolts may have been reused instead of being replaced. Reuse of the existing bolts may cause the bolts to loosen.
Consequence:
Loose rear sub-frame bolts may adversely affect vehicle handling and control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear sub-frame bolts with new bolts, free of charge. The recall began on November 3, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
